What a difference a day makes! A crisp fitness run was in store for today.
December 1, 2020.
The first day of December brought a nippy 48F degree workout with 16 mph winds!
Day 24 was completely different from yesterday’s balmy run. No rain, no problem.
My pre-run meal – 5 egg white burrito, with scrapple, lettuce, cheese, and hot sauce. Now that’s a pre-run meal. An hour later it was time to hit the road.
Running Gear Checklist
It is mostly cloudy this afternoon, the temperature outside was a warm (48F), with steady winds (16 mph). No tornado warnings today.
My pre-run checklist:
- Nutrition – I had a good base with a rather large pre-run meal
- Warm-up stretches include some squats, high kicks (front and back), lunges, and pulling knees to the chest
- Power check for my phone and AirPods
- Definitely wore my long sleeve tech shirt, and didn’t wear a jacket for reasons I can’t explain
- Put on my reflective vest
- Grabbed my handheld phone carrier

On the Run – Before and After
The outside temp was chilly today. I could have used my jacket and gloves. I was underdressed for the crisp fitness run occasion.
Vegetarian Fitness Diet
I enjoyed my pre-run meal. Getting your workout diet right is important for having a good, productive training session. I normally get that part of my fitness nutrition right.
However, my post-run food choices need some work. I need some mental toughness to fight through my sweet tooth cravings later in the evening.
In addition to cutting out sugar, I would like to reduce or eliminate red meat or meat, altogether, from my diet.
I love how running makes me feel. The energy boost, blood flow, and clear mind. BUT, I have a tendency to overeat during my training.
Overeating why training is not something I enjoy. By overeating, I mean eating more than I burn.
With my next fitness challenge… starting in less than a week (yikes)… I want to incorporate longer distance runs with a vegetarian diet.
I have been reviewing several plans and this is the plant-based fitness system I want to use with the next challenge.
Yes, I know the holidays are upon us, but there is always an excuse for not pushing yourself if you let it.
Cutting out meat from my diet will be a bigger hurdle than any distance/duration I plan to tackle.
This should be interesting!!!
Streaking to the end
I knew today had the potential to be a crisp fitness run type of day, and it was.
Aside from the weather, the run was good and another one in the books.
